the progress and being benchmark to satisfy the obama administration. november 2011, obama gave an executive order 589 which required agencies to reduce the total expenditures and other items by 20% below the 2010 spending. the next year the office of management and budget issued a memorandum directing agencies to reduce the travel budget even more by 30% and to maintain that spending level until 2016. finally, i want to thank our witnesses from the department for a hearing today. i know some of you are very new to your job. i understand that you have been serving in the role of the assistant secretary for human resources in the administration for only about a month. although you were not here when these mistakes were made. some will look to you to complete the implementation of the inspector general recommendations and to prevent the waste that occurred in 2011 from being repeated. with that mr. chairman, i yield back. >> i might note that mr. murray has been in his possession since 2005 so perhaps the long serving kid on the block will be a good combination for today. will have seven days
in attitude of the obama administration. i mean, we have a president -- the president has to lead. congress can't lead. you can get help from congressmen like congressman frank who helped us in our time of crisis. but the president has to lead. and on the democratic side, he's not showing any leadership that gives any democrat member the idea that what they ought to be doing is trying to work with the republicans. >> then do you write off the next three years as it can't happen in washington? >> i don't think you can write it off. i think it's good they've got this conference committee that's going to try to work out a budget deal. i'm not overly optimistic because the president says means $1 trillion in new taxes. the republicans say a budget deal should mean more economic growth. >> they also say no new taxes. >> well, they say we'll produce much more revenue but not by raising rates. and history bears that out. but they're so far apart, the only way they can get there is if the president does like reagan does or did or did like clinton did. and both of them were ready to lead and to try
with reports in germany suggesting that president obama was briefed on the surveillance of german chancellor angela merkel's phone in 2010 and fast tracked any information gathered directly to the white house. in the past few days, anonymous administration officials told the u.s. media that was false. and that a white house review only discovered the surveillance of world leaders in the summer. the bugging of merkel's phone ended soon after. for european parliamental delegation it's visits to washington is about more than the bugging of world leaders. about the surveillance of 10s of millions of its constituents. >> itrust has to be rebuilt. we need to figure out why this kind of massive activity is happening. and what kind of trust needs to be rebuilt. in the end we are fighting a battle in terms of security, we need to get that balance right. we are concerned, too, about security. and we made that very clear. but also there is a balance to be struck with privacy of citizens and i think these frank exchange need to rebuild that very important trust. >> reporter: their first meeting, however
. first of all, dana millbank in "the washington post," for a smart man, president obama professes to know a great little about many things going on in his administration. and this from the wall street journal's bret stevens, call mr. obama's style aloof or irresponsible, but a president who governs like this reaps the whirlwind, if not for himself, then for his country. remember, the report about the 10 million people losing coverage came from nbc, a mainstream tv network, usually very sympathetic to the president. why are they turning? because of stories like this. neil cavuto's guest natalie willis had one of the lowest cost plans offered by her insurer, $199 a month. $1500 maximum deductible. she liked it, she wanted to keep it. not under obamacare. >> they're offering $278 a month. 1600 out of pocket deductible and covering 70% of my costs after that. now i'm definitely in a position i'll be bankrupted if i get ill or seriously injured where i wasn't before. stuart: yes, you heard her right. bankrupted by obamacare. we're talking about this throughout much of the next 90 minutes, it i
tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. ms. foxx: thank you, mr. speaker. in 2009 president obama made a promise his administration had no intention of keeping. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your health plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. no one will take it away, no matter what, end quote. today's "washington post" bestows upon this moment of rhetorical splendor and others like it four by folk owes for the -- four pi folk yows -- pinocchios. it turns out the affordable care act is cutting health insurance plans. apparently the president's promise came with a large caveat. if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan if we deem it to be adequate. for millions, washington has deemed their personal health care plans deficient and come january, they won't have access to the plans they had before. americans deserve better. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlelady from arizona seek recognition? the gentlelady is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, mr.
